First time on first permission.

Post by Davidthomas » Mon Oct 14, 2019 10:39 pm

First time out on my first ever permission. I've only ever been out on club rallies and I must admit it felt a bit strange being on my own . But got an hour in . Bit boggy and then it started raining. Got a coin though so always happy ! George 3rd 1977. So hopefully there's a lot more to find. Farmers even given me my own parking space , and text to see how I'd done ! Glad I went and asked him now because it put me well outside my comfort zone .

First time out on a new permission and finding a coin bodes well for your future searching ::g
The date given of 1977 is obviously a typing error. Whatever the actual date is matters not, it's still a first coin on a first permission ::g Good Luck - Regards ss47

Congratulations on your new permission and your find, I hope you have lots more finds waiting there for you. I just got my own first permission, I haven't been out on it yet but very excited about doing so.

Well done on the permission and the coin David... always difficult to ask a stranger for a 'random favour', but face-to-face is always best (there are some nice and curious landowners out there). Nice chunky coins these, and same period as the legendary cartwheels, so we knew what you meant. ::g

Well done on the permission and coin.

Regarding the parking space when getting a new permission its always well worth asking where the landowner would like you to park.

Just parking where you think is "sensible" might well not be, eg leaving a gap "with lots of room for people to drive through" might be fine for cars but no use what so ever for a big tractor and trailer!, likewise you do not want to leave your car where a large herd of cattle can rub against it every time they come in for milking!.
